A week into F1 2020 and while the gameplay is unrivaled and My Team spectacular, the game hasn’t been without its problems.

Codemasters is starting to address these issues.

Keep reading for more details.

PitCoins

Some players, mostly on Xbox but also on PC and PS4, are yet to receive the PitCoins they should have got on launch.

If this has impacted you Codemasters want you to let them know via their forum.

“We’re looking for parity on Xbox with other platforms as quickly as possible, and we’re aiming to release another patch to Xbox next week, alongside patches to PC and PS4.”

They are also going to bring another patch next week, so it’s all hands to the pump.

Mercedes livery

The Silver Arrows will soon turn black.

Codemasters were put on the back foot by a number of last-minute livery changes by teams.

The new Williams livery is already in the game, and the Mercedes one – along with other final team colours and models – will be coming “soon” in an update.

New tracks?

When Mugello was added to the F1 calendar this season gamers were excited to see the track on the F1 2020 game.

Unfortunately, Codemasters won’t be adding new circuits.

We’re still holding out hope for a DLC, or even inclusion on F1 2021 though.
